This handmade Rosary is beautiful and strong.
Love this rosary—beautiful, well-crafted, manly! Can’t wait to start praying with this.
The rosary was stunning when I unwrapped it. I had no idea it would be so beautiful
Great workmanship and an overall quality product, but for nearly $75 I almost expected it to be made out of gold. What you get is a little underwhelming. I saw in other reviews that the crucifix had a good hefty feel to it compared to other rosarys, so when mine arrived I was a bit surprised at how light it still felt. Sure it’s hefty but I think that’s due to the size of it more than the quality of the material. Same goes for the wooden beads, they have a very nice finish and texture, but still feel very light. Again, and excellent product, but when I’m paying as much as I did for something as small as a rosary, I expected the best of the best in terms of sturdiness and materials. You should know the high price is not because of the materials, but because of the high demand for the product. The duo defender rosary I bought was listed for $65, but was out of stock. When it came back in stock, it was $75. I understand that to limit demand, the price needs to be upped, I just wish that for that price, it was a little sturdier
Thank you so much for your honest feedback. If you are thinking these things, there's a good chance other customers are, too. Let me do my best to address them:
1. Most important, we want you to love your product. If you don't, we'll gladly accept a return and full refund. No questions asked.
2. You are correct, we did raise our prices recently. When we first started, I was making all the rosaries and wasn't factoring in my own labor. Our recent price changes reflect the cost of running a Catholic Business with employees and operating costs. We will never artificially create a price based on demand.
3. In regards to sturdiness. You are correct, wood beads aren't heavy. It's not a factor of quality, they just don't weigh much. I'll look at ways to communicate weight and size more accurately on the website. You aren't the first person to share similar feedback. If you want a heavy rosary, no one makes a heftier rosary than our good friend Andrew over at Holy Armament. If you just want a rosary that won't break, you have it in your hands. If our rosary breaks we'll replace it or re-string it no questions asked.
4. We believe the rosary is the most powerful spiritual weapon in the world so naturally we use the highest quality materials in the world. Where we weren't satisfied with the best available, we started making our own...see our Terror of Demons centerpiece as an example.
I hope this information is helpful, and again we're happy to offer a full refund if you don't love it. Thanks again for the honest feedback. It really helps keep us honest!!
To Jesus through Mary,
The rosary is awesome with the masculine look, with good quality of material, sturdy and durable. I think this is the best rosary I have ever had in my life
